The Seminole Hard Rock Casino, located in Hollywood, is the area's top casino. Featuring a luxury hotel and fantastic pool/beach, this hotel is a magnet attracting tourists from around the country. With recent changes in gaming regulations, the casino now offers a variety of table games including Blackjack, Let it Ride, Baccarat, Three Card Poker, and Pai Gow Poker. Of course, they still have a wide variety of slot machines for those seeking electronic entertainment.

This Indian casino is the original land-based gaming destination in Miami and it shows the signs of age. Unlike the flashier Seminole Casino, the Miccosukee Resort is a no-frills kind of place, but it's close to home, located on the edge of the Everglades. The casino offers 1,700 slot machines, 58 poker tables, and high-stakes bingo.
